The Tiger is Under Threat

The Tiger is Under Threat.

The tiger is under threat from a number of different factors, most of which are unfortunately human made issues. Tigers are often targeted by poachers due to the high demand for these animals for traditional Asian medicines and also as status symbols. Habitat loss is also a huge issue for tigers (as well as most animals). Deforestation and urbanisation means that tigers now occupy just 7% of their historic range of land.

Tiger farming is also a massive issue. Illegal farms breed tigers for their body parts, which are then sold on the black market. This in turn increases the demand for body parts which links back into the demand for poaching. It really is a vicious circle.

Finally due to climate charge and the aforementioned shrinking habitat, tigers are seeing a natural decline in their prey as well meaning they struggle for food to eat.

WWF’s conservation work looks to reverse these trends, aiming to tackle the 4 key areas mentioned above. With your help they are ambitiously looking to double wild tigers numbers to 6000 by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger.

5 Reasons to Protect Tigers

The wild tiger is a precious commodity today this is because their critically low population numbers continue to decline as a result of poaching, habitat loss and other human related issues. Whilst tigers did used to roam throughout Southeast Asia, India has the largest number of wild tigers left on the planet. Here are five reasons why you should adopt a tiger.

1. We Are in Danger of Losing the Wild Tiger Altogether

There used to be as many as 100,000 wild tigers at the beginning of the 20th century. Now the wild tiger population has fallen to as few as 3,200. Your adoption will help WWF raise conservation awareness and protect tigers from coming into conflict with humans which is the main threat to this magnificent species.

2. Help WWF Restore the Tiger’s Natural Habitat

Less than 10 per cent of the tiger’s original habitat remains in a country like India. The figure is less in other countries where the tiger roams. The money raised from your adoption will restore the tiger’s habitat which has become fragmented and in the process that will enable them to move more freely within their protected areas.

3. Help Stop Poaching

By far the most significant threat to the wild tiger comes from illegal poaching. Help WWF in its efforts to increase strengthen anti-poaching patrols and increase the availability of prey in the areas they live in. If we can stop the poaching, then the wild tiger population can be saved from extinction.

4. Help Stop the Trade in Tiger Parts

As we said earlier the biggest threat to the wild tiger population comes from illegal poaching. People hunt tigers for their body parts which are valued in eastern medicine. You can help WWF educate the public by making them aware that there is no medicinal value that comes from a tiger. If we can stop the demand we can stop the supply.

5. Animal Adoption is a Great Gift

Do you know someone that loves animals? If so, adopting a tiger will make a great idea for a Christmas or birthday gift. For just £3 a month you can adopt a tiger and receive a cuddly toy, gift pack and other goodies.
